I am known artistically as 2hermano. Acrylics are my preferred medium but I work with aerosol as well. As a painter, I focus my time and energy to be a clear and open channel from that non physical place where all inspiration comes. I use art to translate that inspiration on to a blank canvas. My approach to image-making negotiates a balance between the spiritual world and the physical one, drawing inspiration from pre-Hispanic concepts and other indigenous/spiritual traditions of my Raramuri (Tarahumara) lineage. In this way, I leave traces of primitive memory which bridge yesterday with today, joining the recent with the past.
I rely on our desires for beauty and seduction. However, this project has always been grounded in healing and aesthetics. My creations are a labyrinth of shapes and colors that reflect our unity with the cosmos. The imagery awakens dormant memories through its subliminal context and asks the viewer to remember serenity, love, joy and wonder. I integrate many styles and synthesize them into an artistic expression that comes from the deepest sentiments of America’s origins. Often insinuating indigenous culture, my work explores untold relationships between hermetic wisdom and the erased history of indigenous culture.
